February 2023

We may still be in winter but the snowdrops are sprouting, gardeners are plotting and warm weather is coming. We enjoyed our seasonal break at TAKE 5 but behind the scenes, we were busy producing the annual 2023 Explore Guide for Ladysmith, Cedar, Saltair, and Chemainus. No rest for the wicked, they say. Keeping busy is good, as long as you remember to take 5 along the way. (Pun intended)
TAKE 5 February issue is here to help you get to know your community and neighbors better. After all, connection is a key element in happiness and health. Elly Smith is all about living your best life possible, and she has collected a number of local health and wellness practitioners’ products and services to help you on your personal path to health.
Financial health is another concern on many people’s minds. On that front, we have some sage financial advice in Money Matters that may help you navigate the new year.
Kerith Waddington shares why serving on the North Cedar Fire Department is rewarding, and Esther Sharp takes us on a trip through the history of Ladysmith’s cenotaph which just turned 100 years. Stay warm with your favorite Valentine – a person or four-legged friend. Unconditional love is hard to beat writes Jackie Moad in Down on the Farm.
